Airline to conform to regulations

INTER Island Airways Fiji will have to meet all Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji requirements before it will be allowed to operate in the country, according to CAAF chief executive Netava Waqa.

Responding to queries from this newspaper about the US-based airline's intention to begin operations mid-next month, Mr Waqa said Inter Island had yet to obtain crucial certification that would allow it to begin providing passenger services.

"At the moment, progress in obtaining an air operator's certificate has been very slow," he said.

"CAAF can only commit to a time once we are satisfied that Inter Island Air has complied with all our requirements."

Inter Island Airways Fiji had announced plans to begin domestic air services in July last year.

Because of the complexities of establishing services and the mandatory requirements needed, the carrier revised its start date to December last year and had since moved this to March this year.
